Louboutina, named after a French shoe designer, loves going out for her daily walk to give the people she meets hugs.

She's quickly become a local celebrity with over 135,000 followers on Instagram.

"It’s not just a regular walk in the park," her owner, 45 year old Fernandez- Chavez told The Dodo. "It's a walk with hugging. So we don't get to go too far."

Fernandez-Chavez claims he never taught Loubie (for short) to do this — he says she does it all on her own.

"Loubie started holding hands with me, with both paws crossed over each other. A couple of years back, it was around St. Valentine's day in 2014. My relationship had ended, and I was heart-broken," said Fernandez-Chavez. "I remember joking with my friends saying 'at least I have someone to hold hands with on St. Valentine's Day!' "

But Fernandez-Chavez knows he is not the only one who needs to be loved, other people could use a hug, too.

"A lot of people say she made their day… like, if they had a bad day at work, perhaps this was just what they needed."

"It's nice to see people walk away with a smile," Fernandez-Chavez says. "She's bringing them joy. It's very rewarding."
